that hit london it would have wiped out london. do we keep dodging bullets here or what? >> well, you could say yes. it is inevitable that something like this is going to happen. things hit the earth constantly. every time you see a shooting star or something tiny, something microscopic is shooting through the atmosphere and every year something size able. >> how do we see the asteroid and don't see the meteor? >> i'm not a professor but -- >> i'm not actually an expert, so it's okay. how do we miss that? >> the thing is, nasa really is tracking thousands of objects that are objects of interest near earth asteroids. this thing was small and frankly the direction it was coming from was towards the sun. so we didn't see it. sometimes we spot things just days before they pass by. and some things we track for years in advance. >> so this we just barely -- or unfairly, we missed. we could miss other stuff. should we pour money into equipment or technology that would see more of that stuff, however small? i'm all for putting money into nasa. it's half a percent of our budget. only a small fractio

. it atlantaed over 830 square miles and the same meteor hit london we would have had no london. we were lucky then. we should be lucky now. some call -- [ inaudible ] but if memory serves me right, dinosaurs were not so lucky. forget losing data. the dinosaurs lost, well, dinosaurs. here is the killer. they didn't get a warning, which is probably just as well. who needs a text to confirm you're about to be toast? all right. speaking of dinosaurs, they are coming back from extension. why? well, to catch my "state of the union" coverage. it promises to be that good. don't the ladies of strait of "s illustrated" know it? it's my big return. they don't want to miss a second of it. neither should you. we have got so much going on. beginning at 8:00 p.m. we're on the air through 11:00. what do i get with you, neil, that i don't get anywhere else? live market reaction as it's going on. you get the full republican response from marco rubio. you are getting business tita titans to weigh in on the impact it has for you and the hiring plan. you might want to listen up to that. in other words, addedal

in 1908. largely unpopulated region, but had the same meteor hit, for example, london, i'm told that london would be gone. so that when these things do hit, they hit over largely unpopulated areas. not all the time. that just the mathematical odds of that tipping are small, aren't they? >> eventually, i always tell people we're playing a game of cost mcroulette with the earth, and most days we win but you can't keep winning forever. every gambler knows that. so our foundation is doing this privately. we are going to -- we are building a space telescope right now, already begun construction, and launching in 2018 to find the asteroids and we'll put the data online so that we know when the next one of these is going to be happening decade inside advance so we can deflect it. >> neil: even, ignorantly speak only my part here, those coming in the direction from the sun so you can still detect them. >> yes. well, from our position in space we can see them. >> neil: doctor, thank you very much. a pleasure having you. >>> who knew you could sue from a cell arranges jail cell. the terro
